google apps transition - new infrastructure

some account features don't transition automatically. rather than wait some indefinite period for the manual transition to happen, i changed my primary email for the google account to an old yahoo email address. this allowed the transition to complete, meaning my google apps user is now a google account. and now i'm moving the "data" back to the google apps account ...

move google voice to a new account using this form, which isn't listed in any official documents. the closest thing to a confirmation from google that this link is legit is this post by ilya 2009 (listed as a google employee as of today 2010.12.07). ie, it appears that it's not a phish, but really poor form for google not to provide a more official endorsement (and heaven forbid that ilya leaves google :) ... don't want to encourage users to blindly provide credentials to unverifiable forms ...

update: happy to report that this was successful - took about a week, but the number and my old smss transfered to my google apps (migrated) google account
